Just wondering, even if you can or not. Because I know overloading on a specific thing can cause problems. Happened to me two years ago with dairy, but I was drinking a gallon, tub of cottage cheese and lots of yogurt per day. But anyways, I'm just averaging about 4 protein shakes per day, with about 20gms in each of them. Wondering if I should worry or not..

Also, on a side note a dietian came to our school saying you don't need more than 20gms of protein per day and exercising muscles it what makes them grow not eating protein. And said how to weightlifters been in her clinic and both died from kidney failure because of high protein diets.

You can develop an allergy from any amount. If they start to bother you then stop taking them.

You must of misheard the dietitian because 20 grams is very little protein. Even the FDA recommends about 60g per day. However, you need much more of you want to grow. Your kidneys should be fine if you drink plenty of water. Try to get more of your protein from whole foods, 4 shakes a day is alot.

Shoot the dietitian in the face for being stupid.

And it's unlikely you'll develop an allergy to your shakes... when you were overloading on the dairy, were they typical lactose intolerance symptoms or a true allergic reaction?

You should hit him in the head with a baseball bat. Might knock some sense into him. I don't know how these people get degrees. University of Tijuana?

Oh man.

If you have a predisposition to kidney problems, then avoid a diet high in protein. Saying high protein diets cause kidney failure is like saying sodium causes heart attacks, ask Built about just how "horrible" sodium actually is. Listen to these boards, don't listen to the dietician.

Listen to these boards, don't listen to the dieticianListening to a dietician is fine. Just not one that doesn't understand human physiology or seems like he didn't pay attention in class.

Not sure, just caused a red dermatitis like rash to appear around the corners of my mouth and nose. And while we're on the topic, does it matter if I buy some expensive whey protein from GNC or is the stuff I bought at wal-mart, 6 star whey protein just as good? But cheaper.

Not knowing 6-star I can't be for sure. Keep in mind that quality control can be an issue in alot of supplements that are not regulated by the FDA. The wal-mart stuff could be absolutely fine. I'm biased, and so are alot of people here, but I recommend buying Nitrean from www.atlargenutrition.com its cheaper than GNC's and they are definately a reputable source for supplements.

I had nitrean a few years back and definitley liked it most overall out of all protein powders, just that I happened to find a walmart gift certificate and so I looked at it as free protein powder.
